Are those dogs that are transitioning?

Just finishing Why Homer Matters, in which the author takes the Homeric treatment of horses as an indication that the poems, especially the Iliad, originated in the Eurasian steppe lands around 1800 BC, before the people we now call Greeks had migrated south. It was a warrior culture, based on herding, dominated by powerful but transient warrior-chieftains, and antithetical to the urbanized culture of the Levant and Egypt of the day, Nicolson stresses the Homeric treatment of the wildness of the horses' eyes. Meade's photos bring that out.

He has a Homeric sensibility, at home in untamed spaces while taking a more jaundiced view of citified living.

"Hector, tamer of horses" I liked more poetic than "Ox-eyed Helen".

The 'dapple Grey' is quite verbal.
